    Trump: Democrats Will Attack Cruz on Citizenship

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a rally at the Reno Ballroom and Museum in Reno, Nevada, Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016.

    Donald Trump thinks that Ted Cruz’s Canadian birthplace would lead to attacks from Democrats, should Cruz win the Republican presidential nomination.

    On Sunday, Trump told a packed ballroom in Nevada that the issue of whether Cruz is a “natural born citizen” despite being born outside the United States is a legal problem and a “cloud” hanging above Cruz’s head, NBC News reported.

    Trump compared Cruz’s citizenship conundrum to Hillary Clinton’s emails. He insisted he liked Cruz and that he wasn’t seeking to disqualify Cruz over a technicality.

    Cruz told reporters in Iowa on Saturday that he likes and respects Trump. “He’s welcome to toss whatever attack he wants,” Cruz said.
